What is Creative Commons?
"Creative Commons is a new system, built upon current copyright law, that allows you to legally use 'some rights reserved' music, movies, images, and other content — all for free. CC offers free copyright licenses that anyone can use (without a lawyer) to mark their creative work with the freedoms they want it to carry. For instance, a musician would use a Creative Commons license to allow people to legally share her songs online, make copies for friends, or even use them in videos or other compositions.
